Cool Device!
Have a multimeter. But this is so much easier. Plug into wall socket, plug appliance into meter. Presto,amps & volts. Did so for all appliances in home. Made a list. Manage consumption. If installing transfer switch, you need this.

It Does The Job
I would have given it a 5 had it had a female plug-in pig-tail a 5+ had it come with an on/off switch and a 10 if it displayed the spike/surge voltage side-by-side with the run-time voltage. As it comes, one needs to pull and insert appliance several times to ensure actual readings of the spike - if you don't see the very first number (flashes as fast as a blink) - you will miss the high surge reading. One of appliance flashed (blink-speed)at 830, then 178 then fell to 98. At first we used... more

Proforce = Great Value!
Living in Houston, hurricane seasons can vary from a few storms to a full blown Category 4 headed straight for the city.

When Rita came close to hitting Houston a couple of years ago, it became apparent that we needed to be ready to stay and tough out the storm if we could not get out of the city.

I made the decision to start shopping for generators.

There were quite a few things that I found important: 1 - quality, 2 - load watts, 3 - fuel consumption. With a limited budget, I... more

Does A Good Job
Does just what it say's it will do great for testing appliances and other items. Lets you see the load the electrical motor pulls. Just plug it into the wall outlet and plug your appliance into the tester and turn it on.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again

Nice Unit
After searching eBay and online, I purchased this unit for the price and the corded feature.

Most other units are plugged directly into the wall and then you plug the powered source into the unit.

Well, as you can imagine, behind stereos, TVs, refrigerators, etc...this corded unit makes it MUCH easier and faster to rate your electronics.

Tip: If you have a TV, dish, cable, speakers, etc. all plugged into a powerstrip...just rate the lot of them via the powerstrip. After all...in an... more

Watts Up....
This testing device is great. You need something like this to check your power draw. I used this to check the power draw on my generator, and then replaced the power hungry halogen lights with a thrifty LED light for my work shed.

Did I Do That ?/?
Having an outside project , I wasn't sure on how much amperage I would need. This handy-Dandy little device gave me the knowledge to put my project into a better prospective. It amounted to , How Much I Thought I Knew vs What I only Thought I knew. The Reliance Load tester is a mind & If ya do it wrong, Life Saver.
Pros: Easy To Use

It's a very good device. It does what it says.

You would be surprised at the real wattage of certain things.

Easy Install Great Customer Service
The Reliance Controls 10 Circuit Transfer switch was very easy to install. Reliance Website has detailed videos to watch so you can see the entire process before you start. I am not powering any 240v circuits so I took the connecting bar off the two 20 amp double pole switches. Also I only need two, 20 amp circuits. I called Reliance and asked about replacing the two other 20 amp breakers with 15 amp breakers as not to over power my house circuits rated at 15 Amps. They 2nd day FedEx'd me 2 -... more

Gp8000e Performance- Very Pleased
When the generator arrived, I ran it a few hours for break in, then with the "assistance" of an electrician friend, we shut down the power, started up the generator (always started right away with the electric start), hooked it into the power panel and started to throw switches.

It easily ran everything (excepting heat pump, dryer, and stove) and we turned on lots of lights, TV, etc. Even cycled the microwave just to see what it would handle.

One confusing factor was the... more

Greatest little gadget since sliced bread. Really helped in my selection of a emergency gererator. I just wanted what I needed and not a lot of extra power. With this tool, it was a sinch. Ed

Works Great, Easy to Use, Just Plug Your Device Onto It and Then Plug It Into the Outlet, and You Get An Instant Readout. Just Select Between Amps or Watts. Helped Me a Great Deal Trying to Figure Out What Would Be the Best Generator For My Budget? How Much Power Did I Really Need in Case of An Emergency?

A Wonderful Product
I bought this generator for dry camping at the infield of Michigan International Speedway for a NASCAR race. Lots were the size of 19x40. I had NO problem with noise levels in the evening. The next campsite was only a few feet away and I heard no complaints.

The best selling feature of this generator for us was the switch for saving fuel. We got almost 8 hours from the one tank full at minimum power (only a CPAP machine was running at night). I am a 66 yr. old woman and it was easy to... more
